A beautiful fall centerpiece, this group of pumpkins was painted black and then the designs scratched into them.  You can find this simple tutorial at Cafe Mom.

This is a fabulous look!  Created by Shannon at Madigan Made, these bright metallic pumpkins are the result of the time consuming process of thumbtacking the daylights out of them.  Shannon lost count of how many boxes, but everything came from the dollar store, so this beautiful group of golden pumpkins was created on the cheap side.  And they are definitely a conversation piece!

Aren’t these just beautiful!  A little bit of puffy paint goes a long way!  I just love the lace-like look of these pumpkins!  You can find the tutorial by Alisa Burke here: Pretty Painted Pumpkins.
